The G-5 group led by Governor Nyesom Wike will be reportedly dealt with after the general elections according to a source in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), The Punch.
The former ruling party has been having an internal crisis since Atiku Abubakar emerged as the presidential candidate of the party.
The aggrieved governors wanted the national chairman Iyorchia Ayu to step down claiming that the leadership of the party should be a Southerner.

The governors have now pitched their tent with other presidential candidates of other parties, only Okezie Ikpeazu and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi holding their support for Atiku.
The national working committee (NWC) of the PDP says punishment will be served to Governor Wike (Rivers state), Seyi Makinde (Oyo state), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu state), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia state), and Samuel Ortom (Benue state).
A member of the PDP NEC who preferred to remain anonymous said:
“At the NEC, it was nothing short of a disgrace to wake up to see governors dancing not in solidarity with their party, but with rival parties to cast aspersions on the same PDP that catapulted them to national prominence.
“It’s a good thing that Ayu is focused on the elections, but we would like to see what happens after that.”
